Fresh from being caught by a live Fox News microphone saying that Barack Obama has been talking down to black people -- an assertion supplemented by the grabby proclamation, "I'm gonna cut his nuts off" -- the Reverend Jesse Jackson is heading to a studio near us. According to an AM 760 press release, he'll broadcast Keep Hope Alive with the Reverend Jesse Jackson, his syndicated radio program, from Clear Channel-Denver's HQ on Sunday, July 13.
Memo to the studio engineer: Open the mikes as soon as he steps into the room -- and leave them on no matter what.
Press "More" to find the aforementioned press release plus a video of MSNBC's report on Jackson's controversial remarks, complete with the word "nuts" spelled "n-ts." Because what makes your nuts dirty is "U." -- Michael Roberts
